Fubara Breaks Silence On Appeal Court Ruling On Lawmakers

Rivers State Governor, Similanayi Fubara, has broken his silence on the recent Appeal Court ruling that reinstated the 27 pro-Wike lawmakers.

He commented on the issue while speaking to journalists in Khana, Khana Local Government Area on Friday.

Governor Fubara expressed his confidence in God’s guidance and provision, citing Psalm 23:5.

He assured the people of Rivers State that his administration remains committed to delivering good governance despite challenges.

He said: “I know that a lot of you will be wondering what is going on and all that. Government has its own challenges. If you go to the book of Psalm 23 verse 5, in the Bible, it said that God prepares a table before you; it can be before anybody. But there is an underlined word that should be noted there: it said ‘in the presence of your enemies’. So, it means that nothing comes easy.

“I want to assure everyone of you and the good people of Rivers State, that we are not deterred. We have made our promises, we will continue to give you good governance, no matter how difficult it is.

“But, like I said before, the worse is over. We are moving on to ensure that we continue to provide what is needed for the development of our state.”

Governor Fubara also highlighted his administration’s priority sectors: health, education, and agriculture. He announced plans to visit project sites in Degema, Ahoada, Omoku, and Rumuigbo to inspect the progress of the Modern General and Psychiatric Hospitals.

The Governor expressed satisfaction with the ongoing zonal hospital project in Khana, which will benefit not only the people of Khana and Gokana but also his own constituency, Opobo/Nkoro. He assured the people that his administration would complete and utilize the facility for quality healthcare.

Governor Fubara noted that his administration inherited non-functional zonal hospitals and released funds last month for the reconstruction and expansion of four zonal hospitals to provide quality healthcare facilities for the people.
